Drones are feeding the healthcare system in Rwanda, reports Al Jazeera.

 

Zipline, a Silicon Valley robotics company, is leveraging drones to deliver blood to hospitals and transfusion centres across Rwanda, promoting it as “the world’s first, and only, national drone delivery service.”

 

Most of the deliveries are for routine stock-ups, but some are for emergency needs. “The mission of the company is bringing life-saving medicine to the most difficult to reach parts of the world,” Justin Hamilton, a Zipline spokesperson, is quoted as saying by Al Jazeera. [aljazeera.com]
